WARNING OF RISK
Dog activities are intended to provide a fun and rewarding experience for a dog(s) and its owner. However, despite careful and proper preparation, instruction, medical advice, conditioning and equipment, there is still a risk of serious injury, including death to either the dog (s) or its owner. Certain inherent risks include the propensity of any dog to behave in dangerous ways that may result in injury to another patron or dog(s). Other risks include, but are not limited to the inexperience, negligence or irresponsibility of a dog owner; the inability to predict a dog’s reaction to sound, movements, objects, persons, or other animals; and actions by the dog(s) due to fright, anger, stress, insect bites, or natural reactions such as jumping, pulling, resisting and biting. Other risks include the hazards associated with environmental and traffic conditions, acts of God, inclement weather, slipping, falling, and/or premises defects. I recognize and acknowledge that there are certain risks of physical injury to the dog(s) and its owner in association with participating in dog activities, and I voluntarily agree to assume the full risk of any injuries, damages or loss, regardless of severity, that I or my dog(s) might sustain as a result of participating in any and all activities connected with or associated with this event. I do hereby agree to waive, relinquish, release and forever discharge the Town of Colchester and the Best Dam 5K Committee, including its residents, members, partners, and volunteers from any and all claims for injuries, damages or loss that I or my dog(s) may have or which may accrue to me and arising out of, connected with, or in any way associated with this event.
